Thank you for your efforts.

RE: Henderson-Memphis
Hi Melissa - Eliza Claggett Henderson was a younger sister of my 2 gr grandfather: Stephen Claggett. So that would make her my 2nd great grand aunt. I just wanted to enter all the family memorial numbers so the family members in the Memphis Cemetery are connected. If you want to do the editing, that's fine with me. Here is the info:

Father: William Henderson #115554681 (I have contacted a JillW to have her release or update his entry.
Mother: Eliza Claggett Henderson #15484773

Edith Henderson #65840484
Lena Henderson #65869693
Omar Henderson #65869779
Wm Ashley Henderson #65870585

How are you connected to this family? I have written two books on the Claggetts and was unable to find any living descendants at the time of publication. The above children who lived to adulthood never married so I assume you are connected to Frances Jane (Henderson) Smith or Mary A. (Henderson) Tice. Would love to connect with you if you have photos and info to share.

RE: Cutler's
My bad! I have used the Sandusky Library. They have a great genealogy department. I found lots of obits on line. I wish other libraries would do the same.
Thanks again,

RE: Cutler's
Thank You for the transfer. I am working with another to connect all the Cutler's together. I have used the Sanilac Library but will look into the Sandusky Library.

Jennie A Van Natter/Vanatter
Hi, Melissa. I'm researching the Vanatters as they relate to the McKay family which is related to my Meredith family. These families are from Sanilac County, Michigan. Marian E Meredith, the sister of my 2nd great grandfather, Jesse Meredith, married John McKay. John McKay and Marian were the parents of Edward McKay who married Laura Vanatter Digby after both their spouses died. I am positive that Jennie A Van Natter Young was the sister of Laura as her two sons, Rex and Van Digby, were living with Jennie and Samuel in 1930, listed as nephews of the head of house. Jennie and Laura both have John Vanatter and Mary Ernst listed as their parents on their marriage records. I'm tracking down the parents and siblings of Laura, who died in 1943, to round out my tree...okay, because I'm a crazy amateur genealogist who can't stop following a family line no matter how distantly they're related to me. Edward and Laura didn't have any children together, so bloodline is not an issue, just plain curiosity is what's motivating me.

All of this is just my way of asking if I may use the photos you have for the Vanatters and their allied families in my Lemon, Knapp, Herr, Meredith, Barnard, Oglesby tree on

RE: More Info
Mary Hewitt was Rosetta and James' daughter, so that confirms my beliefs. Thanks for making the transfer. If you want me to take over the other Bradley/Badleys, I'll be happy to. Not sure if they're all connected... some may actually be Bradleys, but maybe some are part of our family. I would love to connect their daughter Lydia (my late husband's grandmother... she's in IA) to them but her name is listed incorrectly and I can't make contact with the contributor to make the changes. I've been trying for over 6 months.

RE: Brunner
Thank you for the information. I have linked him. Would you please consider adding the family photo to Rudy's memorial? (the one that is on his father's memorial?) Thanks!

Maxine Newberry
My sister was the flower girl for the first wedding of Maxine Newberry. I have the wedding photo that I can send to your gmail.
My uncle Lester Ginn was married to Lucille Newberry I have a few photos of my mother, Margaret Ginn, with Maxine and, I believe, Irene. I'll try to find them and scan them over to you too.
